The borough can be found approximately five miles (8km) from the City of London and was one of the six London boroughs to host London 2012 Olympics events.

The boundaries of the new borough encompassed the whole of the former county boroughs of East and West Ham, as well as the area known as North Woolwich and an area just to the west of the River Roding which had previously been part of the Municipal Borough of Barking.
